1. Performance Benchmarking and Intensity Calibration of a Widefield Fluorescence Microscope Using Fluorescent Glass
Published: 8/11/2014
Authors: Michael W Halter, Elianna Bier, Paul C DeRose, Gregory A Cooksey, Steven J Choquette, Anne L Plant, John T Elliott
Abstract: Widefield fluorescence microscopy is a highly used tool for visually assessing biological samples and for quantifying cell responses. Despite its widespread use in high content analysis and other screening applications, few published methods exist f ...

2. Testing Equality of Cell Populations Based on Shape and Geodesic Distance
Published: 12/3/2013
Authors: Robert Charles Hagwood, Javier Bernal, Michael W Halter, John T Elliott
Abstract: Image cytometry has emerged as a valuable in-vitro screening tool and advances in automated microscopy have made it possible to readily analyze large cellular populations of image data. A statistical procedure to study homogeneity of such data ...

3. Measurement Uncertainty in Cell Image Segmentation Data Analysis
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7954
Published: 8/13/2013
Authors: Jin Chu Wu, Michael W Halter, Raghu N Kacker, John T Elliott, Anne L Plant
Abstract: Cell image segmentation is a part of quantitative studies regarding cell movement and cell behavior, and it plays a critical role in molecular biology and cellular biochemistry. Therefore, it is fundamentally important to evaluate the performance ...

4. Boltzmann's H-Function and Diffusion Processes
Published: 5/15/2013
Authors: Steven P Lund, Joseph Bunton Hubbard, Michael W Halter
Abstract: There exists a generalization of Boltzmann's $H$-function that allows for non-uniformly populated stationary states which may exist far from thermodynamic equilibrium. Here we describe a method for obtaining a generalized or collective diffusion coef ...

5. Metrology for Lab-on-a-Chip Final-Product Devices
Published: 5/12/2013
Authors: Darwin R Reyes-Hernandez, Michael W Halter, Jeeseong Hwang
Abstract: New metrology tools to measure the critical parameters of internal structures in lab on a chip devices are greatly needed in order to develop standard tests for this technology. Here we present a method that combines a custom made optical coherence ...

6. Segmenting Time-lapse Phase Contrast Images of Adjacent NIH 3T3 Cells
Published: 1/15/2013
Authors: Joe Chalfoun, Alden A Dima, Marcin Kociolek, Michael W Halter, Antonio Cardone, Adele P Peskin, Peter Bajcsy, Mary C Brady
Abstract: We present a new method for segmenting phase contrast images of NIH 3T3 fibroblast cells that is accurate even when cells are in contact. The problem of segmentation, when cells are in contact, poses a challenge to the accurate automation of cell cou ...

7. A New Measure in Cell Image Segmentation Data Analysis
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7871
Published: 7/24/2012
Authors: Jin Chu Wu, Michael W Halter, Raghu N Kacker, John T Elliott
Abstract: Cell image segmentation (CIS) is critical for quantitative imaging in cytometric analyses. The data derived after segmentation can be used to infer cellular function. To evaluate CIS algorithms, first for dealing with comparisons of single cells trea ...

8. Stable nanoparticle aggregates/agglomerates of different sizes and the effect of their size on hemolytic cytotoxicity
Published: 12/1/2011
Authors: Justin M Zook, Robert I. MacCuspie, Laurie E Locascio, Michael W Halter, John T Elliott
Abstract: Methods to disperse nanoparticles reproducibly in aqueous solutions compatible with cell-based assays are critical for studying cytotoxicity. Here, we disperse gold and silver nanoparticles in cell culture media, letting them agglomerate to a variet ...

9. Comparison of segmentation algorithms for fluorescence microscopy images of cells
Published: 6/14/2011
Authors: Alden A Dima, John T Elliott, James J Filliben, Michael W Halter, Adele P Peskin, Javier Bernal, Marcin Kociolek, Mary C Brady, Hai C. Tang, Anne L Plant
Abstract: Segmentation results from nine different segmentation techniques applied to two different cell lines and five different sets of imaging conditions were compared. Significant variability in the results of segmentation was observed that was due solely ...

10. Using surface plasmon resonance imaging to probe dynamic interactions between cells and extracellular matrix
Published: 7/13/2010
Authors: Alexander W Peterson, Michael W Halter, Alessandro Tona, Kiran Bhadriraju, Anne L Plant
Abstract: Details of cellular interaction with a fibronectin coated surface were examined using surface plasmon resonance imaging (SPRI). SPRI is a label-free highly sensitive technique that is based on the measurement of interfacial refractive index. SPRI is ...
